Article Writing

Dec 8, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

Traffic! Traffic! I need traffic to my website! I have been trying so hard to write articles and submit them to article directories but still can't see traffic flowing in to my website. Why?….hear the screaming voice of many website owners who are hungry of internet traffic.


Article had been recognized as internet #1 marketing strategy and the most effective way to generate tons of traffic to a website. You heard about this statement before and putting a lot of efforts to write articles and working very hard to submit them to many article directories which you can find from internet; while waiting for your articles to be approved by these article directories, you start to imagine with smiling face:


If those 200 articles directories which I submitted with my 3 articles, each one bring me 200 internet traffic to my website, then I will have 120,000 targeted traffic and If 10% of those visitors buy my product or click on my Adsense ads, then I will earn $$$……….


You wait with patient and with full of hopes for your articles to be approved and drive tons of internet traffic to your website. Finally, your articles are lived on internet and you start to monitor your website internet traffic from time to time. This is the situation you may face:


Day one: 0 visitor drop by to your website. You give yourself an excuse that it only one day you articles live on internet, let wait for some times.


Day Two: again 0 visitors.


Day three has two visitors; day four has 3 visitors; day five has none visitor……day by day past…..where are those 120,000 targeted traffic? You wonder!


This time failed never mind, you try the same process again: Writing a few articles, submit them to hundreds of article directories, waiting with hopes for approval, monitor your website traffic from time to time.


What's goes wrong…..why my articles can't drive traffic to my website? This must be the questions come up to your mind after a few failures. If this is your case, the first thing that you need to do is review your articles. Are your articles attractive enough to lead your article readers to complete reading your article and curious enough to get further information by visiting your website through the link from your article.


In order to drive traffic to your website using articles, these steps must happen:


1. Internet surfer looks for information from internet or ezines directories. Hundreds or thousands of search results or related articles list up for the internet surfer to choose from; he or she will selectively click on the links from search results based on the summary of each search result or article which he or she thinks the links will bring him or her to the useful information he/she needs.


At this first step, you need to have an eye catching article title and summary which will draws the attention of your potential website visitors.


2. Next, your article needs to drive your readers to complete reading your article and create the anxiousness to get more or further information by visiting your website. According to the experts, good articles are articles which can connect to your audience with emotion beside provide them with necessary information.


Facts and Statistics are fine but what makes us take action is emotion. If your articles are all fact and create no emotion then who cares about going on to find more dry facts at your web site. Your articles will fall into the depths of article directories everywhere and be a big fat waste of your time and efforts.


There are many tips and tricks available from internet on how to write a killer article that will flood your website with traffic. Simply search on this article directory with keyword Killer Article or Quality Article will give you many results with useful information.


If there is a need, you might want to get help from a professional writer to write you a quality article and private label it to yours for submission. There are many good writers around where you can use their service; off course fee normally incur, but it's may gives you a good return in investment (ROI).


Do waste your time just to write articles but put your effort to write quality articles. It's true that Article is the internet #1 marketing strategy. Just good & bad articles that make the different.

Social Traffic

Dec 8, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

Nowadays, Social networking sites popularity is increasing day by day like facebook, myspace, orkut, digg etc…., we can say social networking is one of the best and free ways for increase traffic on our site. Social networking is important in blogging and if you can’t do social networking then it’s a rare chance that you’ll be successful in blogging. Leaving comments and trackbacks is part of social networking. Apart from that is part of one of the popular Social news networks.


(1). Increase traffic through Friends

Friends are the heart of the social networking attitude, and when promoting content this can be a valuable tool in viral marketing. The more friends you have in your network, the more visibility you will have when promoting.


(2). Increase traffic through Blogs

Blogs are one more great way to spread the word, most blogs allow you to post nameless comments. I use these blogs to post a comment then I include a link to one of my sites. I achieve a free back link for simply commenting on a story.


(3). Increase traffic through Picture Perfect

You may not understand it, but by passing on uploading your picture, you are also passing on an opportunity to get more people clicking on your articles. Why? Well, for one, it is known that spammers never take the time to upload a picture. Second, it is called ’social’ networking and ’social’ bookmarking sites. If you are trying to be ’social’ then you should put a face to your name.


(4). Increase traffic through Profile Pages

If you are a keen online social network’s, you will have a pimped out profile page. Here are a few examples of how you can increase visibility to your content. On my profile pages at,,, and I have links to all my social network profiles & personal projects. This does 2 things; increases my link back total to my projects and shifts visitors to my other profile pages so I get more friends! to promote your RSS feeds via your profile pages, the service displays recent RSS activity and the service is free. Another service you find interesting is, a service that tracks and stores your social networking traffic. The service simply puts an image on your profile and counts the total amount of visitors per day, month and year.


(5). Increase traffic through bulletin

Bulletins use your friends list, basically the more friends you have the more views your bulletins receive. Common sense! Some people use bulletins way to much and if I grasp these spammers they get deleted ASAP. So my advice is to use this angle a few times a month and keep them simple, this raw move toward keeps the bulletins friendly and not to over bearing.


(6). Increase traffic through Content

Nothing is more important than content. If you are a good writer and you write about interesting topics, you are going to do well on the social networking sites. People seem to like top 10 lists, top 20 lists, etc. I suggest that you look at to see what gets the most diggs. I have failed multiple times on getting a post digged or stumbled, even when I thought that it was the best article ever. You don’t always win.


(7) Increase traffic through clipart and screensavers

If you have some skills in this direction then try creating clipart and screensavers. Offering these for free is also a good way to get more traffic.


Finally, make sure that you are part of a few of the more popular social networking websites. These memberships will be only destined to build your own network and not of overt marketing. As your social network grows you can invite your contacts to join you on the social networking website. This should start a sequence reaction that will get them inviting their own contacts and so on. Finally your network will grow to a point where it becomes truly helpful.

Traffic Footprints

Dec 8, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

How to increase website traffic? This question is always asked by webmasters.


Everyone may know that the most targeted traffic is from search engines. But does everyone know how to get top positions for FREE ?


SEO services are expensive and they often do not guarantee their promises. Offsite optimization, relevant links from other sites is the key to SEO success.


Reciprocal link exchanges have value in helping page popularity scores with the search engines. However, unless webmaster gets lucky and some of his link exchange partners turn into high powered sites, exchanging link advertisements will only take your site so far. One-way links to the site from authority websites is the name of the game to put site over the top.


Some people probably tried automatic link exchange networks. And they promised webmaster will have a lot of links. Yes, it is the true. But any “link network scheme” that leaves “footprints” put the site at risk of being banned. If link is placed on “links” pages or on page that has the name of script in its name it shows search engines will not rank that site high.


But if link is placed on the page relevant to the keyword webmaster wish to get good rankings in search engines on the position of the page will raise. There are two ways to get this effect. For example webmaster has a travel website and has page about travelling in Florida. He would like to be in top 10 by keyword “florida travel” What should he do ?


One way.


He starts searching for potential partners with relevant sites all over the internet, artificial non-effective link exchange networks, reciprocal links or he buys links. What does he get ? He gets no or little increase of his site’s position or his position increased but he spent a lot of money.


Another way


Webmaster searches LinkWizard database and find pages about Florida. Then sends another webmaster request to exchange links on relevant content pages. Anothert webmaster agrees because he also interested in relevant links. What next? Link is on relevant page of partner’s site. What does webmaster get? His position raise by keyword “florida travel” and he is happy.


Here are benefits webmaster will receive from LinkWizard automatic link exchange service:


1. LinkWizard will save webmaster money by helping webmasters communicate directly about links on each other’s site and content pages. By using database, webmaster can be assured that he is getting the best value for his site because he gets links from pages that are on the same topic as his site.


2. He will find large portals with many pages in our database. Each page has specific topic. Webmaster can select page that exactly matches his site topic. Links from such pages are the only links that search engines LOVE.


3. Webmaster can choose link text for each specific content page. He may choose keyword that he would like to be listed in search engine as link text on and place it on the content page which is optimized by this keyword. Raising of he position by this keyword is guaranteed.


4. This service is FREE. Webmaster do not need to buy links from webmasters, text link auctions, text link brokers.


5. Everything is done automatically. He do not need to e-mail webmasters, ask them on which pages you would like to place your link on and wait for their answer for weeks.


6. There is no one “footprint” to search engines. Other link exchange networks leave a lot of “footprints” .For example sites can use the same visible script, links can be placed on “links” page. If search engines find “footprint” of link exchange network they will not rank high your website. With LinkWizard webmaster have none of this. All links are placed only in mid-paragraph of relevant content pages. This way of linking without any visible “footprints” has fantastic effect for search engines!



Long Term Traffic

Dec 8, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

I have noticed in Many marketing forums How newbies give up in search of building traffic in less than 6 months. Building Long term targeted traffic takes time and dedication towards your website. You need to work towards getting Web site traffic and optimize accordingly.


Before You read anything about SEO or traffic building, You need to remember it takes time to get free and targeted traffic to your website. You might have heard some X guy getting 1000′s of visitors in its first month. But Do not hasten the process of organic traffic.


In this article We’ll discuss long term SEO building tips that’ll help you build a profitable website.


Any website that wants to make money needs to get optimized, and stay that way. Running and SEO campaign once or twice isn’t enough in this market: you need to consider long-term maintenance of your SEO.


For Long term planning You do not need to chase search engine algorithms on daily basis. As Search engines improves their algorithms quite often. It’d be waste of time and effort to chase them. Better You can do is understand basic SEO techniques and keep building a powerful resource in your niche.


Some tips for long term SEO.


1. Check on your pages regularly and make sure they’re still listed. Your listings are the most important part of your SEO work. Whether the page is listed or not is vastly more important than what key words you have etc. After all, if you aren’t listed at all what good is it to optimize?


2. Watch for bad links or broken links in your site. Fix it as soon as possible. Any missing pages should be checked out thoroughly. Chances are that the system has run into a problem, but if you don’t check it out you may very easily be wrong. I had one of my blogs PR dropped in matter of 24 hrs when I wasn’t checking it. Somehow I recognize my mistake and worked towards building it again. Now My blog got back its PR and traffic.


3. Resubmit your sitemap if you make major changes, but not for anything smaller. It’s better to have a blog giving latest details on minor changes.


4. Create monthly ranking reports on your site, to see if any changes need to be made.


5. Keep submitting your site to the big directories, as spiders use these as a starting point. This point is not stressed more often. If you need traffic from MSN and Yahoo, You need to do this. Some directories will provide you low cost listing for a year (sometimes lifetime). Normally they have High PR pages. So it’ll help you a lot. Besides from Basic SEO techniques You need not to worry a lot about regular fluctuations in your rankings. Though you need to keep an eye on your rankings and try to notice which factors are giving your results.


6. While we are on building links, You need to work on getting lots of link backs regularly. Be it Link exchange or one way links through submitting articles. Do it regularly.


7. Watch your competitors and the methods they use. You’ll learn a lot by watching and understanding what your competitors does.


8. Keep updated yourself on your niche. Issue press releases Often if possible. Press releases are not like articles. Make them “news”. This will bring targeted traffic to your site.


9. Update Your articles on regular basis. Most Experts suggest Updating it at least once a week. Write a 500-750 word article and publish it on your site. Go for low traffic keywords which are searched less than 400-500 times a month. If you are interested then read this page on writing articles that bring traffic With these tips alone You should be able to bring lots of free organic traffic to your site.


10. You need to know how to analyze your own website. Though You’ll find lots of articles on Website Optimization but before you go Let me give you a link to one of the software which I use For obtaining High Rankings for my sites. With this Software You’ll be able to spy on your competitors site and If need you can copy his exact methods which helped him gain into top rankings.


This might seem like a lot of work for a small website or company, but you need to do it to help your website grow. If you don’t have growth, you have nothing. No business wants to stay where it is forever, and SEO is a good way to get more business and stay in the race.



Free Traffic

Dec 8, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

There are several ways to get traffic to your site. You can pay for your traffic or get it for free. I’d like to concentrate on free traffic.


The first thing you need to do is make sure your site is key-word optimized for the search engines. For a new site, using low competition words can help you to get placed high on some search engines and give you much needed targeted traffic. If you have a site with several categories, doing at least one optimization a day will slowly but surely build your business. With more than one category this gives you an opportunity to be placed on the search engine with each category and not just your front page.


Another way to help build targeted traffic and links to your site is a blog. You can have the blog linked to your site. If you update your site regularly and ‘ping’ your blog with one of the free pinging services, you will gradually build your traffic and business.


There are many sites that have free content that you can use on your blog. Once you’ve set up the blog and find the right ping service, this would only take you a few moments a day. When using free articles, be sure and use proper etiquette, giving the author credit for his writing.


The tried and true way to build ‘free’ traffic and links, is articles. You can write about anything you want or about the services or products your website distributes. If you’re not able to write the articles yourself, there are a number of services available that can do it for you (you pay). Then post your article to as many directories as possible. Webmasters are constantly on the look out for good, new content.


The number of links to your site is critical in your placement with most search engines. Articles and a blog help build your site targeted traffic slowly. But to speed up your linking process, you could search and join some link exchange sites. The more links the better.



Targeted Traffic

Dec 8, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

Everyone who has a website knows that to have sales you must have traffic, but not just any traffic it has to be targeted traffic.


What is Targeted traffic? It is simply visitors to your website that are interested in what your website is about. For example, people interested in buying jewellery will find jewellery websites interesting.


How do I get targeted traffic I hear you ask? The following are tried and tested methods:


Forums: Subscribe to forums that discuss your topic. Answer questions and join in the debates there. Become an expert in the field. Then with each article reply you write have a discreet link to your website in the signature file. What can be placed in your signature is often determined by the forum moderators. Do not spam the forum or you will be stopped from posting. This is one of the most productive ways of getting free traffic as those who click your link have already read and liked your style.


Linking from/to other websites: Contact website owners that have similar but not competitive websites to yours, ask them for a reciprocal link from their website to yours. Be sure to select your link partner to match closely your customer profile. Software programs such as Arelis are very helpful in this process.


E-Zines: Contact e-zine owners that have your target readership and buy advertisements from them. Be sure to have a test run to see that the return on investment is sufficient to cover the costs involved. If you are buying an extended run of advertisements haggle with the e-zine owner over price. You may save a considerable amount.


Newsletters: When people visit your website offer them something of value for free if they sign up to your newsletter (like an e-Book). Your newsletter should be written tightly geared towards your topic. It should be published regularly at weekly intervals.


E-Books: Often used, these are usually free informational books for your clients and for others to give away free if they leave your links in the book itself. You can place links back to your website in the books you sell or give to your clients.


Joint Ventures: Contact online marketers looking for new products to sell. They often have large mailing lists with eager to buy customers. Normally they are willing to email their list for a cut of the sale price. This works particularly well with informational products. It has several advantages. It can give a very sizeable boost to both your sales and mailing list within a very short period.


Buy Traffic: This is probably the cheapest in terms of time and most expensive money wise. It gives a traffic boost normally within 30 days. What are you buying? You are buying traffic from expired domain names which the company selling the traffic has bought. They are domain names still registered on the search engines which get a considerable amount of traffic. The previous domain name owners have either lost interest in the name or simply forgot to renew the registration. This means that the traffic from the expired domain name is simply redirected to your website. This is usually high quality traffic as only websites with traffic such as you want is redirected to you. As always, a test run to see if this traffic is suitable should be undertaken.


When you combine these techniques and apply them consistently over time you will find a rich source of targeted traffic coming to your website. This, combined with quality products will ensure the success of your online business.



Article Directories

Dec 8, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

Dear fellow netrepeneur. Maybe we share the same problem.


We have a great website, but little or NO visitors. Now what is a website without traffic? It’s like an old book lying full of dust cause nobody uses it.


What we want is traffic and loads of it. And would it not be great if we can get it for FREE? So how do we go about to get this FREE TRAFFIC? You know, theres a lot of Article Directories spread accross the internet which give Article Writers (Authors) the opportunity to post their articles there for free with a free backlink to their sites.


All you have to do is to register with these Article Directories, activate your account, create a penname and then add your articles. And this is exactly what I used to do. But let me tell you (not that you are not aware of it), IT IS A TEDIOUS TASK. I mean, to addone Article to ALL these directories manually can take days or even weeks of hard work.


I wondered if there was’nt a program available which could assist me with this task and found quite a few article submitters available. The only problem was that some Article Distributors was not free and those that were had some restriction (like it will post to only a certain amount of article directories).


You’ll have to buy the full version to get the most out of them.


Others could not post to the correct Categorie at the Article Directories ( it will post an article about dogs under Finance for example). Now that is very unproffesional.


So started my journey to try and create a program that could just do everything the others could not.







And guess what? I accomplished it. And noe I want to share it with you at absolutely NO COST.


Maybe you think that you can’t write an Article? Let me tell you. YOU ARE WRONG!!!! I had the same thought at first, but what are you reading now? My article of course. You can write about anything under the sun.


You can even write an article about how you created your first website, or how you struggled to get traffic.


The sky is the limit. Below you will find a link to my site “Super Article Submiiter” where you can Auto-Post your articles in no time ABSOLUTELY FREE OF CHARGE!!!



Link Exchanges

Dec 8, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

Do link exchanges work? You bet they do. You will find countless posts in webmaster online forums explaining how exchanging links increases your link popularity, your Page Rank with Google, and your search engine rankings in general. However, I say forget all that. The best reason to do link exchanges is to get the actual traffic that each link will generate.


Suppose you get 1000 people to link to you who each generate just ten visitors per month. That is an additional 10,000 free visitors to your site per month. You do not even need to be listed in the search engines! You have automatic traffic coming in from other sites even if you are nowhere to be found on the search engines. Try multiplying the above numbers by ten and the figures get really interesting!


The key is not to just exchange links with any site. You should look to exchange links which offer similar content to yours. This is just common sense. If you are going to get an additional 10,000 visitors to your site each month they should be targeted visitors. They should be visitors who are already interested in your area.


What about SEO, search engine optimization? Forget about it! The search engines are changing their rules constantly. It is almost impossible to “trick” them. Even if you succeed for awhile eventually they catch on and your site could get banned. So I say just concentrate on getting releavant links to your site. What the search engines are looking for anyway is relevant content and relevant links. So don’t try to trick them. Just give them the real deal! This is how by not concentrating on SEO you will have what all SEO experts are shooting for. Plus, even if you are not listed right away in the search engines you will be getting real free targeted traffic from relevant sites. The SEO will take care of itself.



Get Web Traffic with Link Directories

Oct 28, 2011   //   by small biz genius   //   Web Traffic Generation  //  No Comments

So you’ve finished your website masterpiece and want nothing more than spreading out the word and receiving tons of traffic as soon as possible? Now you might think of a way of a good way to drive traffic to your website in no time. What could it be? Article submissions? Press releases? Link exchanges? Sure! But each an every method requires a huge amount of work and most of all… time! Imagine those countless hours of writing articles or trying to formulate an effective press release. Requesting link exchanges will even be more time consuming. Some website owners might just laugh at you because you have no pagerank or significant traffic while others take ages until they put up that single link to your website.

I have been there and done it all! I don’t even want to count the hours that I’ve spent for registering with the different article websites or emailing webmasters. I’ve always tried to figure out a way to get indexed in the search engines as soon as possible and to get a good pagerank in no time. Then, one day, I finally saw the light at the end of the tunnel: Directory submissions. Now please don’t immediately think of those free for all (FFA) links pages that will place your link on the frontpage for like 5 minutes or so. I mean well established link directories, websites that are really effective for getting your site indexed fast.

The good thing with link directories is that you practically have to do nothing but submit your website link, a title, short description and some keywords. Of course you also have to select a category under which your website should be filed, but even that is no problem at all as most link directories have a comprehensive list of categories available. When you have submitted your website it will most of the time be reviewed by a human editor. This might sound like a bottleneck at first, but when you think about all those crappy websites that don’t get listed because of the spam techniques they use, (remember those FFA link pages) it is absolutely an advantage!

Getting your site listed at link directories can be extremely easy if you follow some simple rules.

When build your website make sure that it doesn’t look like it was put together in 30 minutes or like it was made by a 5 year old. It’s really the quality that counts and that gets you eventually listed. If you now think: “Oh no, I have no chance to even get a single listing!”, then let me tell you that you shouldn’t worry so much. An easy way to find out what requirements your site has to fulfil to get listed is to browse through some of the directory listings and have a look at the websites that are already included. You might laugh out loud when you see some of them – not because they look crappy (OK, some even might), but because they are kept pretty simple and clean. I guarantee you that if you are serious about website building and use a good software and/or design you should not have to worry at all. Of course it is always a must to read the directory guidelines to see whether your site qualifies for a listing or not (e. g. there’s no suitable category available).

Some link directories might require to put a link back to them on your site, a so called reciprocal link. It could either be a simple link, some more advanced HTML stuff (don’t worry, you can copy & paste the code almost all of the time) or graphics. The benefit the link directories get from that is that when your website finally gets some good traffic and has high search engine listings some of your visitors might find their way to the link directory itself. Also it will give the link directories some pagerank when your site has lots of backlinks (and you WILL get them by submitting to link directories). Make sure to put up those reciprocal links before you submit to the directories as some of them might instantly check for it and possibly reject your site.

If you follow these guidelines and make sure that you have some good!!! and search engine optimized content on your website (not just dozens of pages of keywords and spam), then you will have no problems at all in getting listed with the link directories, getting picked up by the search engines and profiting from the floods of traffic. I personally do directory submissions almost daily and most of the time manage to get picked up by the link directories at the first try (sometimes I do some stupid mistakes by submitting a website and having misspelled the title or URL because of too much caffeine in my blood). As far as the traffic results are concerned I am more than satisfied. Lots and lots of my websites have TOP 10 listings in all of the search engines and have brought me significant traffic and product sales.

The best thing of all is that you don’t even have to manually search for those link directories by yourself. I use a software called Link Directory Submitter that does most of the work for me. I should be ashamed for my laziness, but I’d rather prefer to spend more hours lying in the sun and drinking Margaritas than submitting links for hours. To be honest, with automated software like Link Directory Submitter I could submit an army of websites in no time but hey, I’d also have to build them. Now that’s a vicious circle!
